Product Description

New world. New clan. Sexy new bunch of rough and tumble shifters. Are you ready for the Broken Hill Bears to fight for your heart?

*** Full-length standalone novel ***


Freya Wright is on a mission to heal her broken past by hiking the entire west coast of the USA with her two best friends. The first time she comes face to face with Xander Silvester, Alpha of the Broken Hill Bears, he’s fighting in a live shifter wrestling match, and the fleeting connection between them is magnetic. The second time is when he tells her that she and her friends have to spend the rest of their lives in Broken Hill, after his clan mates accidentally kidnap them. She’s determined to fight it every step of the way, but resisting the muscle-bound Alpha with the smoldering dark eyes proves to be her biggest challenge of all. The longer she’s held captive, the more she sees in the charismatic and powerful Xander. Should she stand by her principles and fight for her freedom, or yield to the demands of her body and love the only man who’s ever reached her heart?

Xander Silvester’s life has turned from military order into absolute chaos overnight. He’s the new Alpha of the Broken Hill Bears, an infamous wrestling clan, but his father’s unconventional choice has left him with a rebelling older brother, a disobedient clan and the threat of enemy attack. And then a moment of stupidity from certain clan members lands three human females right in the middle of Broken Hill. He needs to decide how to deal with them, but just one look at the sexy, feisty one, and he can’t get her out of his mind. As clan politics spiral out of control and his leadership is on the line, he’s faced with a terrible dilemma: lose the respect of his clan, or break the dreams of the woman who’s captured his heart.

This is a 55,000-word novel (around 275 standard pages)

Note: This book and all other books in the Broken Hill Bear series are standalone and can be read completely independently.

Xander is back from his stint in the Military, and to see his father. When he arrives home and finds that his Dad has chosen him not his older brother to be Alpha, his world is turned upside down. Freya, Eloise and Marin all have something to prove to themselves, and when Freya says she's going to try and find herself walking a trail through America, Eloise and Marin decide to join her. When Freya and Xander's worlds combine in the least expected and very terrifying way, they both discover things about themselves they never knew.
I have really enjoyed this story, I liked how even the good guys can make wrong choices when they they do t follow their hearts. If you've enjoyed any of Ariana's precious books/series, you'll thoroughly enjoy this one too.

Ohhhhh Boy, Ms. Ariana has the makings of
one fantastic series that for sure. But then
this is not unusual for this lady. I sware I was on the edge of my seat screaming "Get up!!!! You can do it!!!! Yes! people around me thought I was crazy... But I couldn't help myself, Ms. Ariana had me from the beginning and to the end in one sitting.
Freya Wright is hiking the entire west coast of the USA with two close friends Marin Carter and Eloise Mathers. Freya and Marin were really into hiking they knew they could make it. Eloise on the other hand just recently divorced, decided she needed a new lease on life and hiking the entire west coast was a start ... Not....even I know for an inexperienced hiker this is to much, but Eloise was doing it. They made it to there scheduled stop and had a hotel room with a real bed and shower. In the lobby Freya met some girls who invited her to a shifter wrestling match, after that HER LIFE WAS NOT THE SAME.
Xander Silvester came home because his father asked him to. This military hero came back home only to find his father was in bad shape. The Alpha waited for Xander to return home where he turned over the reins of Alpha to Xander, which he than died on the spot. Being second born this was truly an honor. So Xander was the new Alpha of the Broken Hill Bears – an infamous wrestling clan. Trust me there is so much more to tell BUT then I'd ruin it for you. Take my word it's an amazing Must Read First Book Of the Series.
I was gifted this book for an honest and truthful review.  You'll be sorry you don't get it.

BEAR IN THE ROUGH {BROKEN HILL BEARS}-THRILLING & STEAMY ROMANCE

This story focuses on Xander, a strapping, sultry, wise, bear-shifter, and retired special ops engineer; Freya; a sassy, sexy, dark-haired intelligent beauty.

What you'll find in this story; a cast of remarkably impressive and engaging characters, captivating story-line, picturesque and dynamic scene descriptions, fabulous banter, camaraderie, gut-wrenching moments, action, a bit of drama and danger, gripping suspense, life-threatening moments, spiraling emotions, heart-throbbing sensual romance, and a melt your heart conclusion leaving you wanting more.

After five years of being in the military, Xander comes home to the news that his dad has picked him over his oldest brother Maximus to be the next Alpha of the Broken Hill Bears. Maximus feels betrayed, and bitter towards his brother which trickles down to the clan creating unwanted tension. Freya and her two friends, Eloise and Marin have set out on three thousand mile hike, each having their own reason for this journey. They believe they are well prepared with the necessities they need, have plotted out all rest stops, but they were certainly not prepared to land smack in Broken Hill Bear territory; and now an unexpected adventure begins.

WOW/ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC-fast paced well written imaginative read by a truly gifted author. The characters come alive with the intriguing plot, action and fantastic dialogue. I absolutely loved Freya and Xander together; Freya’s sassy persona and intelligence blended well with the Alpha’s wit. Their romance is filled with fiery passion, and steadfast devotion. This was a most delightful read, as I also enjoyed the other characters and the true friendship between the girls.

When Xander’s father asked him to seek a discharge from the military and come home, he had no clue as to why. When he does make it home and finds out, it is the last thing he expected. And this is the start of his problems with his older brother. Freya, Marin and Eloise meet up at a school reunion and the two women decide to join Freya on her 3000 mile hike up the US. But Eloise isn’t real in shape to make the trip so the ladies deviate to get her to a town sooner. But when off the main path they see three shapes in the distance life changes forever for them. This is a well written and very entertaining story with lots of surprises and unlike any story I’ve read before. Thoroughly enjoyed read this self-contained story with a wonderful HEA.

Enjoyed this first book of a new series. I have enjoyed all of Ariana's books that I have so far. Xander has been in the military, but has been called home to his bear to become the alpha after his father. His older brother resents this as he feels that he should be the alpha, so you know there are going to be some problems there. Freya and her friends Marin and Eloise are hiking the west coast of the U.S. and stop for a rest in a hotel. Freya is invited to go to see a shifter wrestling match and sees Xander fighting. She cheers for him and he feels that she helped him to stand back up and win. But the girls accidentally see 3 of the bearclan shift and the 3 men kidnap them and take them to the clan home ground. Things progress from there. Xander and Freya are attracted to one another and eventually things work out. Great story, well defined characters and a wonderful HEA. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
